Invictus is a global cannabis company offering a selection of products under a wide range of brands. Our integrated sales approach is defined by five pillars of distribution including medical, adult-use, international, Licensed Producer to Licensed Producer and retail stores.
Invictus has partnered with business leaders to convey our corporate vision, including KISS music legend and business mogul Gene Simmons as our Chief Evangelist Officer. To meet growing demand, Invictus is expanding its cultivation footprint, with three cannabis production facilities licensed under the Cannabis Act and Cannabis Regulations in Canada. To accommodate international sales, Invictus’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Acreage Pharms Ltd. (“Acreage Pharms”), has designed and is currently building its Phase 3 purpose-built cultivation facility to be European Union Good Manufacturing Practices (“EU-GMP”) compliant. The Company is targeting up to 50 per cent of production to medical cannabis. To ensure consistency in quality and supply, Invictus maintains all aspects of the growing process through its subsidiary, Future Harvest Development Ltd., a high-quality Fertilizer and Nutrients manufacturer. Invictus drives sustainable long-term shareholder value through a diversified product portfolio with over 69 Health Canada approved strains and a multifaceted distribution strategy including medical, adult-use, international, Licensed Producer to Licensed Producer and retail stores.
Poda is actively engaged in the development and commercialization of vaporizable products, which have the potential to reduce the risks associated with combustible products. In addition to several other intellectual property holdings, the Company has developed an innovative heat-not-burn vaporization system that uses proprietary biodegradable single-use pods, which are both consumer and environmentally friendly. Poda’s patent-pending design prevents cross-contamination between the electronic vaporization device and the pod, eliminating all cleaning requirements and providing users with the most convenient and enjoyable potentially risk-reduced vaping experience. Pod refill options range from dried flower and tobacco to liquids and concentrates, and can easily be switched during vaping sessions to suit any adult consumer’s mood.
